    snap/intellitxt like mouseover

    I'm not looking to match words, or run ads, but I do have a box I'd like to appear above a link on mouseover. I can position it, but I'd like it to "stick" better than it does (it can move if you move your mouse after a second right now).

    Can anyone point me to some sample code for creating a floating layer like this?

    Your best bet it to position the box relative to the co-ordinates of the hovered element (not the mouse cursor position). Unless that element changes position, the box will remain where it is no matter where the cursor moves.

    Yup, that'd be perfect.

    All I'm looking to do is have a javascript called onmouseover and have this div appear and stay up if someone wanted to click on it, or the link.

    Anyone have any pointers/samples?
